Laundrapp plans to set up a focus group with its customers, suppliers and the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) to determine the safest way to operate the service before launch.

Warburton added: "We're committed to investing into the future of our services and our customers, and we're looking to open up the discussion with drone suppliers, safety experts and customers, the latter who will be able to trial the service when we launch”.Laundrapp collects, launders and returns items to the home or office within 48-hours.

The contact-free collection and delivery service cleans everything from suits, shirts and dresses to coats, baby clothes, bedding, towels, and other household items.
